Looking at the Weekend: Feb. 17-19, 2012

GhostRider Looking at the Weekend: Feb. 17-19, 2012Although the film is sure to bomb with critics, there’s no way the sequel to the highly popular Ghost Rider is going to come in second, though against This Means War, it’s entirely possible.

Consensus

Below is a list of what we have come to a general consensus on. The number in parens represents the percentage of our contributors who agree with the statement.

Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance: If you liked the original, why not waste your time with the sequel?
The Secret World of Arrietty: Studio Ghibli is the next most consistent animation house behind Pixar and Aardman, so don’t count the film out.
This Means War: Don’t bother if you aren’t ready for an action/romantic comedy hybrid.
Undefeated: A popular Oscar-nominated documentary will serve fans of the medium well.

Thoughts

The first film was bad enough. I refuse to subject myself to another mind numbing waste of time.

Thoughts

Looks like a waste of time to me.

Thoughts

The first one was forgotten by most everyone (including the Academy), expect this one to be too.

Thoughts

I like Hayao Miyazaki, but this isn’t he. It may be Studio Ghibli, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to see it.

Thoughts

Looks to be a well-made animated feature.

Thoughts

The latest from Studio Ghibli is never-to-be-missed.

Thoughts

It might be a little fun, but in a thoroughly pointless, distracted kind of way.

Thoughts

A combination action/chick/comedy flick, why?

Thoughts

Nothing in this movie looks rewarding, let alone worth awarding.

Thoughts

I’ve had the screener in my pile for weeks, but I’m not a huge fan of documentaries, so it will probably remain there for a very long time.

Thoughts

Oscar nominated inspirational sports documentary may be worth your time.

Thoughts

The Oscar nominated documentary looks fascinating.

  1. You should watch Arrietty. It’s pretty good. Not Ghibli’s best but it doesn’t suck.
